How Smart EV Charging Resolves the Main Issues Linked to EV Charging Today
Even though the market for electric vehicles (EVs) and charging stations is booming, EV owners often face problems linked to charging their car. Circuits blowing, a lack of insights in the charging process and being unable to maximize the use of solar energy are at the top of EV owners' frustrations. What is needed is a smart all-in-one energy management system that offers actionable energy insights, down to the appliance level, and the means to automatically control that energy in the most optimal way, enabling smart EV charging and self-sufficiency.
Smart EV charging offers autonomous circuit breaker protection. Current infrastructure often cannot cope with the additional energy demand of electric vehicles. EVs charging during peak hours or multiple EVs charging simultaneously may result in blown fuses or damaged circuits. Smappee helps charge vehicle(s), whilst the building’s energy demands are met and the system is maintained well within maximum power limits e.g. the amount of energy towards the EV will automatically be reduced when people start cooking and use the oven (and fuses risk blowing) and will be re-instated when they are done cooking. In commercial situations this energy control will even allow optimization of the number of charging points without having to change the current electrical infrastructure.
Smart EV charging will also offer optimal use of solar production. Smappee can maximize the use of renewable energy throughout the day for the charging sessions. That way, it optimizes self-sufficiency and saves costs. Finally, tailored Smart EV schedules will make sure that EV drivers always have as much charge as they want by the time they need it. Tailor the smart EV schedules to their lifestyle. These automations and energy control offer cost savings and resolve the top 3 issues linked to EV charging, so people can live, work, and relax without compromising on comfort.
